Not bad: comfortable and clean. But the ceiling fan , in the room where I slept, it make a lot of noise. Moreover, even if you speak extremely low, is not allowed to stay after 11pm on the porch or in the living room with friends...

To people looking for a nice, calm place outside the city who travel with others and can therefore split a cab hasslefree, I´d recommend this. I shouldn´t have come here, because the location was too far from the city for a person wanting to do the nightlife. I wound up paying for more than an extra night in cabfare alone in one go, since the metro was closed... So, if you´re looking to hit the nightlife, don´t be allured by the 24.50 Reals. It will cost you way more in the end... Otherwise good

The hostel is in a very calm area (a rarity in Sao Paulo). Those seeking rest and peace will enjoy a lot. For party-lovers, maybe you should try other areas, although there're some bars nearby to chill out.

We found the hostel itself to be a nice place to stay - very friendly and good facilities, and the breakfast was pretty good. Unfortunately, though, it suffers from noisy neighbours, some of whom were talking so loudly that we had trouble sleeping. When we told the manager about this - we were simply told there was nothing that could be done, and no attempt was made to rectify the situation. For this reason, we wouldn't recommend it for anyone who needs to be able to sleep properly at night.

It was an awesome place to stay - it would have been fun to stay longer there. We only stayed one night at this hostel. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast was really good. It is dumb that you have to pay extra to use the internet here because you already pay more than most hostels to stay here and most hostels let you use the internet for free.

For South American standards, this hostel is average.It´s 15-20 min to the next subway, the ride to the city center takes another 20 min.The breakfast is included and good. Internet access is 2 R$/30min,but WiFi is free.Some mattresses definitely have to be replaced and the rooms need to be cleaned more often than every 2-3 days.One day the toilet was broken and the bathroom was continuously flooded by water.It took 2 full days until they tried to fix it.Staff is helpful, though. Useful kitchen.

Very pretty hostel, where you definitely feel at home. Everyone is helpfull, informations about what to do, where to go or not ... the breakfast is really good and you can drink coffee, make food and have a talk quietly with the staff or others backpackers, and the staff can help you for everything (buses, concerts... etc...) A great hostel with a really helpful staff. I definitely recommend this address.
